Peace and grace in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Matthew 28:16-20 is about the commandment to preach the gospel or to spread the light or shekinah glory
.Matthew 28:2028:20 "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
God will be accompanied us until the end of time. The accompaniment of God is a main need in our life that cannot be replaced by anything
In Exodus 33:1-4, the house of Israel gets a terrible threat because of being stiff-necked or the hard heart.
The threat is God does not want to accompany them. Moses keeps on asking for the accompaniment of God, although He gives the angel instead of Him to lead them to defeat their enemy and enter Canaan.All things in the world such as riches, good position, intelligence, et cetera as well as service and ministry to God will be meaningless if God does not accompany us. Moreover, the kingdom of heaven will be meaningless if there is no Jesus there; all things only go toward perdition
There are solutions to get the accompaniment of God as follows
- Moses builds the tabernacle of meeting [Exodus 33:7-11].
- The house of Israel takes off their ornaments [Exodus 33:5-6].
We learn the first solution now
.Exodus33:733:7 Moses took his tent and pitched it outside the camp, far from the camp, and called it the tabernacle of meeting. And it came to pass that everyone who sought the LORD went out to the tabernacle of meeting which was outside the camp.
Moses builds the tabernacle of meeting outside the camp of the house of Israel as the place to seek God or the place He may accompany His people.
The tabernacle of meeting refers to sheepfold
and the tabernacle
Exodus33:1133:11 So the Lordspoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle.
Joshua the son of Nun, a young man refers to the youth
and the renewedlife
. Joshua neverleavesthe camp, it means as follows
- Persevering in sheepfold.
It means in three main servicesin shepherding system as follows:
We will experience the Love of God if we firm in the sheepfold.
- General Service, referring to Golden Candlestick,
- Bible Study Service with Holy Communion, referring to the Table of Showbread,
- Prayer Service, referring to Golden Altar of Incense.
- Being faithful to one true teaching Word and God willbefaithful to us.
Joshua is accompanied by God through the faithful love of God
We are shepherded in true teaching Word like a branch that sticks on the true vine, thus we will be sanctifiedcontinually. It starts from the heart.
Mark 7:21-237:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries(1), fornications(2), murders(3),7:22 thefts(4), covetousness(5), wickedness(6), deceit(7), lewdness(8), an evil eye(9), blasphemy(10), pride(11), foolishness(12).7:23All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”The heart and mind are being purified from twelve evil and unclean things
, then we can be strong and of good courage and the faithful love of God will be with us.
It has been written four times about strong and good courage
to face deceiving over the world in Joshua 1:6, 7, 9, 18.Matthew24:3-5, 11, 2424:3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will bethe sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceivesyou.24:5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceivemany.
24:11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceivemany.
24:24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
The false teaching encourages us to the false worshiping. We must be strong and of good courage to keep the right worshipingbecauseit has been written four times)
.Revelation19:1, 3, 4, 619:1 After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belongto the Lord our God!
19:3 Again they said, “Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!”
19:4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, “Amen! Alleluia!”
19:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
The practicesofbeing strong andofgood courage are as follows
- Holding fast and being obedient to the true teaching Word.
1:7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the lawwhich Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.
We will get luck and success.
- Believing and entrusting God still, notto despair, disappoint or count on something else.
1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lordyour God iswith you wherever you go.”
- Being example according tothe true teaching Word.
1:16 So they answered Joshua, saying, “All that you command us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go.
1:17 Just as we heeded Moses in all things, so we will heed you. Only the Lordyour God be with you, as He was with Moses.
1:18 Whoever rebels against your command and does not heed your words, in all that you command him, shall be put to death. Only be strong and of good courage.”
- Being employed in the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain, which is the revival of the building of the perfect body of Christ starting from inside of marriage.
1:6.Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.
We will experience the faithful love of God.
36:8 How precious isYour lovingkindness, O God!Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.
The faithful love of Godisinthe covering ofthe wings of God
. The results are as follows:
- The covering of the wings of hen to the broods.
13:34 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathersher brood under herwings,but you were not willing!
The brood refers to the hopeless life. The faithful love of God is able to care and protect us in the midst of the wild world.
- The covering ofthe wings of dove.
55:7 So I said, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove!I would fly away and be at rest.
55:8 Indeed, I would wander far off,andremain in the wilderness. Selah
55:9I would hasten my escapefrom the windy storm andtempest.”
The faithful love of God gives peaceand serenity to face anything. It makes everything light and easy, solves all the problem in time even for the impossible one.
- The covering of the wings of great eagle.
12:14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
It means as follows:
- The faithful love of God is able to fly us to another wilderness for three and half years at the time of Antichrist.
- The faithful love of God gives extra power to make us strong, faithful and fervent in ministry and waiting His coming.
40:29He gives power to the weak,and to those who haveno might He increases strength.
40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,and the young men shall utterly fall,
40:31 But those who wait on the Lordshall renew theirstrength;they shall mount up with wings like eagles,they shall run and not be weary,they shall walk and not faint.
- The faithful love of God santifiesand changesour life to become perfect. We can be exalted when He comes a second time.
God blesses us.
